Nature Walks – Pelicans on the Ponds

We are already seeing so many of our great big, beautiful pelicans and it is still very early into the season as well. You don’t realize just how big they are until you see them up close and/or with their wings spanned, like when they are in flight or coming in for the landing. I always love seeing the pelicans on the ponds. Yesterday, there was a big group of them all swimming around together. I think we counted 16 all grouped together.

Sometimes they are swimming as an inclusive group and other times, they are swimming around with friends too. Lately, there have been a couple of cormorants joining them for a swim.

When they have had their swim some will take off for other ponds and places unknown.

While others will stay to enjoy a leisurely day.

I just love it when the pelicans come to play. They can stay all day, and come everyday.
